Blogwars !?

I was reading up on some other blogs and found out sometimes our allegiance switches. When it comes to Skynews I'm in line with Nic at KZero in liking it, contrary to Aleister.
When it comes to Comcast though, me and Al like it, and Nic doesn't. Now we're all pretty serious bloggers, so where's the switch? Why do you like a build, or why don't you, what makes you think a build will work, or not?

Here's a little comparative reading:

AL on Comcast :
AL on SkyNews:
Nic on Comcast :
Nic on SkyNews:
Me on Comcast :
Me on Skynews:

Obviously we have different tastes, and sometimes we like Rivers Run Red and not Millions of Us, or the other way around. But should that matter when it comes to judging a build. We should be able to go beyond that and spot the key elements for branding, for business integration and potential to actively engage the community.

It seems that it is a complex cocktail of several factors after all.

I think, in part, we all come from different backgrounds. But more importantly, we all have different tastes.

Also, we are usually going on first impressions - often fairly quickly arrived at. And often without the benefit(?) of a view from the builders.

Clearly, none of us are always right (or wrong, I suppose) - but blog honestly on our genuine reactions to places.

It is surprising to me how often we actually do agree - much more surprising than the number of times we disagree.

I agree with Al, about disagreeing! and that we all assess devs from different perspectives.

My main point of assessment involves around how the company has leveraged their brand as well as how differentiated the strategy is. And, if indeed there's a strategy at all.

However, we all do seem to reach the same conclusions most of the time.
